Supermarket chains including Tesco, Lidl, Aldi, Iceland have withdrawn ranges of frozen veg over fears it may contain a deadly bacteria.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has warned that frozen sweetcorn is the likely source of listeriosis affecting five European countries, including the United Kingdom,according to MEN.

Listeriosisis a rare but serious foodborne illness caused by the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes that can be more serious for those individuals who have weakened immune systems and also the elderly, pregnant women and infants.

Nine people have reportedly died as a result, according to the European Food Safety Authority.

In a statement, the body said: "Experts used whole genome sequencing to identify the food source, which initially was thought to be limited to frozen corn.

Nine deaths spark warning over cooking of frozen vegetables

"As of June 8, 47 cases including nine deaths had been reported.

"The same strains of L. monocytogenes have been detected in frozen vegetables produced by the same Hungarian company in 2016, 2017 and 2018."

Now the FSA has issued a huge list of 43frozen food itemsthat are all being withdrawn from sale.
